with you. 97 house republicans have sent a letter to the president to discourage him from nominating u.n. ambassador susan rice as secretary of state. and this follows andrea mitchell's reporting yesterday that it was the intelligence community, not the white house, that changed talking points about the unclassified data that could be discussed when susan rice went out on the sunday talk shows to discuss what was known about the benghazi situation. is that something that republicans are choosing to ignore, the facts of that? they're trying to draft a letter like this to almost wreck her reputation before she is even nominated. >> and frankly it doesn't matter what the house of representatives thinks. they have no say in the process. this is more of a headline scheme, frankly. this is press release politics, which is the last thing we need right now. but what is important is to look at the white house did put her out there. she did her job. i'll give her that. she spoke with the talking points she had, what she knew. the fact is the administration to put her out there with misleading info
to know who authored the talking points on the benghazi attack, which the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, used. senator says she also wants to know why the cia information that terrorists were involved in that attack, were cut out of those talking points. david? >> a lot of debate over that in the days and weeks to come. david kerley, thank you. >>> tonight, nearly two weeks now after mitt romney lost the election to president obama, real sign that some members of the republican party are trying to distance themselves from the one-time presidential candidate. it comes after romney's comments this past week to supporters, indicating president obama's victory came in part because he gave gifts to key voting groups. tonight here again, that sound, that recorded phone call with donors and how newt gingrich reacted to it right here on abc's "this week." >> what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> what do you think of
' behavior. the senator and leading democrat also wants to know who offered those talking points led by u.n. ambassador rice. and also why it was cut out of those talking points. david kerley, abc news, washington. >> all right, thank you, david. >>> well, president obama is making an historic visit to the southeast asian nation of myanmar. she the first u.s. leader to ever go to that country which is also known as burma. mr. obama has already met with myanmar's leaders with aung san suu kyi. the president has also praised myanmar's move towards democracy and urged the country to continue making further reforms. >>> vice president biden spent sunday getting an up close look at the area devastated by superstorm sandy. the v.p. toured seaside heights. he later surveyed the damage in hoboken. he later met with supporters saying rebuilding is, quote, a national responsibility. >>> and in new york, city officials plan to demolish about 200 homes severely damaged by sandy. in some cases, the danger of collapse is so great, they'll be bulldozed before the owners are notified. another 500 homes are
it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in ge
cruz your ambassador? >> the guy who thinks the u.n. is conspiring to eliminate golf courses? that guy? you have to love the logic there. we have these crazy people that we need to tame and we have this crazy person here. maybe he can talk to the crazy people. it's interesting logic, but to his point there about saying stupid things, saying offensive things, todd akin and richard mourdock, no question, they lost because of the stupid things they said. but they are not the ones who pushed such extreme policies. the whole republican party was pushing 1,100 anti-choice provisions in state legislatures. trying to shut down the government over defunding planned parenthood. so they have a bigger problem than just a couple candidates saying crazy things. >> i also think ted cruz nomination, if you will s a signal that the republican party thinks the tea party agenda is going to be part of the gop moving forward. they need an ambassador to those folks and the dna is still part of the doed. >> i think the tea party is a strong midterm force. so when the incumbent party does tend to lose, it may

to see the u.n. become a global government, and the u.n. and china and russia which are not yet democratic country. they have veto power on the security council and the general assembly is controlled by nations, despotism, and either we defend it as reagan said or it goes away. and freedom is not the birth right of every human being without everybody fighting for it. >> well put. >> that's an exceptional interview. thank you for hauling yourself out of bed early on that sunday morning. what do you think about that, e-mail us. and the industry is thriving and all because of what they're doing below the surface of the earth. what is the future of american fuel, green or gas? then mitt romney shares a personal story that brings a crowd of 17,000 to its feet, gave goose bumps. how an american flag and a scout leader are making headlines. who is that guy who just absoluted? what's that flag? we're going to tell you. ♪ [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit.
